FALSE FLAGS


LIVING TALL IN DALLAS


Leeds hardcore-influenced troupe False Flags have just appeared on our radar. Comprising of former members of Red Stars Parade and Whores Whores Whores; what their objectives are is none too clear. What is though is that free track Phone My Wallet is a storming assault on the senses, going from whipcrack speed to concrete sledge within its surprisingly vast-sounding five-plus minutes. http://falseflags.bandcamp.com/track/phone-my- wallet-demo


Southampton trio Living Tall In Dallas test the boundaries of overdriven guitar, bass and drums with instrumentals based around space and dynamics. We’re not talking post-rock quiet-loud- louder here, but the effect of smashing a chord out, letting it ring before doing it again, and then picking out a gentle melody to whisper upon. When vocals arrive, they’re barely there, simply colouring over the lines. Their self-titled four track EP is on Bandcamp, and is a brooding lesson in repetition. http://livingtallindallas.bandcamp.com


CAMERAS’ EPIC GUITARS AND HUSKY FEMALE VOCALS RECALL PJ HARVEY AT HER BEST…


CAMERAS


Judging from the free track, I Know, from their debut album, due in October, this Australian trio are running with the tag epic attached to their hind legs. Pianos, shimmering guitars and husky vocals from Eleanor Dunlop all envelop the dark yet adrenalized songs. They’re shrouded in shadow but their ambition clearly aims to claim some of Karen O and PJ Harvey’s territory – striking, bold, feminine but uncompromising. At least, that seems to be the idea. Only time will tell if they continue in this direction. http://cameras.bandcamp.com & www.camerasmusic.com
